Synergy for Synergy

Been able to go back to any version of a document without the need to resort to troubling an external IT consultant is a great advantage. Having 12d Model projects managed with 12d Synergy really simplifies things too.

Pros

The simplicity of the interface, yet the features underneath the hood.

Cons

There nothing to really dislike about the software. If something breaks or is not there, the developer is happy to consider the feature or fix the issue.

Made us mobile!

our workforce is now w truly global. I can work from home or I can work from Fiji

Pros

Enables users work from anywhere, well, anywhere with a web connection.

Works with folders of files.

User friendly and uncluttered interface

manages bandwidth very well.

Puts files in the SAME folder each time

Cons

does not yet have zipped downloads. We move files of several GB (aerial imagery & BIM models) around at times and if users are sloppy with their housekeeping it can hurt colleagues who may be on a very slow web connection - but really this is a user issue and the development team are looking into adding this as a feature

Reasons for Choosing 12d Synergy

12d Synergy review from Dunedin

Version control of files and 12d projects over three separate offices has been improved dramatically. We will utilise further features as we get use to the software over time.

Pros

I find that being able to customise the software to your own specific needs is great. We are fairly new users of 12d Synergy however we have found a lot of improvement in file management, particularly with being able to roll back to a previous version. I also like the mapping feature in V4, and hope that this evolves with the software.

Cons

I personally find some of the menus very tedious and clunky. I have found the amount of bugs in certain versions frustrating, we are always having to update the software. Even then, the updates almost never go straight forward.

One personal thing I hate is that 12d Synergy always opens on the same screen/location and it doesn't set to the screen I close it on. Having to download another program just to force it to open where I want it to is frustrating. Other simple things like having to click on column headers to order the files all the time, there should be a default for this for each user.

Team is more productive and efficient
Simple interface/easy to use
helped with flexible working arrangements

Limited Integration with other software. eg. open roads / Revit

12d Synergy on large projects

I have been using 12d Synergy with very large data sets and its speed and stability is excellent. The user interface makes it very clear who has what checked out.

Pros

The ability to manage and collaborate projects designed in 12d Model is not currently possible by any other collaboration package.
It is very smart with synchronising data and minimises how much data you need to transfer. The first time that you open/checkout a file you you have to download the whole file - but subsequent checkins and checkouts, the transfer is extremely quick as 12d Synergy is only up/downloading the changes rather than the whole file.
The ability to check out files/folders and work off line is great for me when I need to work away from an internet connection.

Cons

Having to host the server hardware requires support from the IT department, but in terms of day-to-day use, I have not found any major issues.
